It was recently reported that Robert Jeffress, the senior pastor at the First Baptist Church in Dallas, said, “Should Obama win (re-election), his victory would lead to the reign of the Antichrist.” He added, “President Obama is not the Antichrist. But what I am saying is this: the course he is choosing to lead our nation is paving the way for the future reign of the Antichrist.”
I suddenly remembered reading about a recent American Bible Society Poll that found that “85 percent of American households have a Bible, but 8 out of 10 Americans stated that the Bible would play no role in helping them to decide who to vote for in the presidential election.” I wondered what it says about our nation’s relationship with God and our attitude toward the Word of God when 80% of our citizens say their vote won’t be affected by anything the Bible says. Has America reached the point where 80% of our citizens are willing to ignore the Scriptures? Has the Church become so weak and ineffective that only 20% of America’s citizens are willing to contend for the faith? The 2012 election involved several major issues of light verses darkness: same-sex marriage, homosexuality, abortion, legalized marijuana, the sale of alcohol in some communities, Pres. Obama’s passion for Globalism or world government, massive deficit spending, Obamacare with its mandated chipping of people, euthanasia or what Sarah Palin calls “death panels,” a fraudulent vote to keep from throwing God out of the Democratic party platform, etc. Has the spirit of Antichrist blinded 80% of America’s citizens?
Anyway, the one Newsweek called “the first gay President” was re-elected and the exit polls began to show who was voting for him: 93% of the blacks (many Christians included), 71% of the Latinos (many Christians included), 70% of the Jews, 6.4 million so-called evangelical Christians (black, white, Latino, who knows) and 55% of those who attend church a few times a month. Multitudes of so-called Christians voted for the man who supported abortion, same-sex marriage, homosexuality, drugs, euthanasia, etc.
Is the support of Church members for this kind of wickedness leading the way to the rise of the Antichrist as the good pastor said? Could this be the falling away from the faith before the Antichrist reigns that the Bible talks about? Concerning the end of the age, the Holy Spirit said people will “depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron” (I Tim. 4:1-2). Paul said people will be “without natural affection,” “lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God” and “have a form of godliness” (II Tim. 2:1-3). He added, in reference to the Tribulation Period, “that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition” (II Thess. 2:3).
Since its very beginning, the Church has been plagued with unfaithful people, but the Bible teaches that it will intensify at the end of the age. Many who call themselves Christians will only give lip service to the faith. They will claim to love God, but they will turn their back on Him and live a lie. A form of godliness with a seared conscience is how people can depart from the faith and justify voting for unrighteousness without being bothered by their vote. God allowed people to freely make this choice. It is a fulfillment of Bible prophecy and it could be a sign that God is ready to judge America by allowing the rise of the Antichrist.
A form of godliness is not the whole story. This world is not anyone’s eternal home. Too many Church members are satisfied with living outside the Scriptures and they could care less about Bible prophecy and going home in the Rapture. Too many of the non-churched are willing to accept any sin the devil can conjure up just so their government check keeps rolling in. Perhaps, 80% ofAmerica’s citizens need a wakeup call. Perhaps they need a time of testing to remind them Who is really in control.
There’s more. Perhaps, America needs to decline so the EU can replace her on the world scene. Perhaps, America needs an inept President so the Antichrist can step forward with grandiose ideas for leading the world. Perhaps, God gave these Church members the leader they wanted because they are supporting abominable things and He thinks its time to judge America, move her out of the way and take the world to the next level in Bible prophecy: the Antichrist, world government and the Tribulation Period.
Understand that Pres. Obama loves the idea of world government. Also, that God said there will be one more world government, it will be led by the Antichrist and it will fail. Perhaps, God wants us to have a President who supports world government because He wants to show us that we need to depend on Jesus not a fake Santa Claus in the Oval office. When that fake Santa Claus fails andAmerica starts down the drain Globalists will cry out for a powerful leader to run a world government. God will let it exist for seven years during the Tribulation Period, but it will fail and people will gladly accept the government of Jesus (His Millennial earthly reign). America’s recent election may prove to be far more significant than most people realize. The Bride of Christ may soon be separated from the lukewarm Mother of Harlots and Hurricane Sandy will seem like a picnic.
